Boone (Part 1)

It has been 20 years since Boone and I took our last walk together and I laid her to rest under a south-facing oak tree. In many ways it seems like it was just yesterday when I reached down between my feet as I sat in an old lawn chair in the breeder’s backyard and picked up a double-fist-sized bundle of orange and white fur that had chosen me to cuddle up to, away from her raucous littermates.
